PUMA still uses Krupp in their version of the German Expedition Knife. Except that it's a $450 piece of it. They used to use in some other knives too. The only people that I ever heard complain about it never had one or never actually used a knife made out of it.

Considering that Krupp 4116 or its clones form other makers are used in VIctorinox, Wusthof, Henckels, Messermeister and bunch of other maker's kitchen knives, it's pretty hard to find people who never used a knife made out of it....
0) This is general knife forumDo you or other people take your kitchen knives into the woods to use? For bushcraft uses? Batoning, feather sticks, fire making? Nah, I don't think so. That's kind of use I was referring to, since this is the wilderness/survival forum.
Very easy, by using same steel in a similar geometry for similar cutting task. Let's face it, it's still cuttingWhat I should say, I guess, it that if you have not used a particular steel in a particular knife for a particular use, how can you pass judgement on it?
Yes, that's the one, W-Nr 1.4116German steel "Werkstoffnummer 14116" which i think is the steel cold steel talks about. but nothing new ...
Where did you get the spec if you don't mind? What i had from Krupp was slighty different Krupp 4116 steel composition.Maybe i get some more information about this 4116 thing.
